Abstract:

Traditionally, flying hours have been used to plan budgets and logistics actions. TACs change to a shorter sortie for their training requirements generated the question of its impact on logistics. This study includes a short review of literature on the subject. It looks at F-4 aircraft operated by TAC and reveals that the length of time for a sortie has little effect on the number of maintenance writeups following. Therefore, an increase in sorties for a given period with no change in flying hours would generate additional maintenance writeups. It is also determined that the mission has a significant impact on the number of maintenance writeups within specific work unit codes WUC. Some WUCs are sensitive to specific types of missions flown. It points out that increased operating efficiencies can be expected in base maintenance if changes are made in the Maintenance Management Information Control System MMICS. These changes would be basically the inclusion of a standardized mission code in order to relate a maintenance action to the most recent mission flown. Author
